leave a comment »

iron_maidenIron Maiden’s lead singer Bruce Dickinson and his crew announced they are planning to visit Macchu Pichu around the time of their concert in Lima on March 26, as El Comercio newspaper reports.

As mentioned in my earlier post, there is great expectation for this concert. More than 40,000 people are expected to attend the show. Around 6,000 tickets were sold just on day one. As of date, nearly 12,000 tickets have been sold.

Tickets are available for sale online (it’s in Spanish) by clicking here.

Looks like a concert to definitely check out if you are planning to be in Lima late March.
